UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance (CAP UCLA), Fuel and Uninvited Guests present Love Letters at Home, the at-home edition of Love Letters Straight From Your Heart, on Wednesday, June 10th
, at 2 p.m. PDT, on Zoom. Tickets are free but require advance registration on Eventbrite
Love Letters at Home is an intimate participatory event where the audience and performers offer dedications and declarations of love, past and present. Each production is collaboratively authored with its audience, who temporarily becomes a community of close friends across the performance. Before the show, people who book ‘tickets’ are invited to send in music requests and to write dedications to those they love or care about, and these are then worked into the event.
Since the actors only speak the words written from submissions, each performance is exclusive to the present participants, featuring their memories, their current and past loves and their emotions laid bare for everyone to witness, acknowledge and support. Love Letters shifts between theater and reality — dedications are spoken, toasts are made, speeches are given, songs are sung and dances danced.
This virtual performance is part of the now touring Love Letters at Home. CAP UCLA is a ‘stop’ on the international tour live via Zoom with an audience of up to 90 participants (45 pairs). A joyful, open-hearted show, Love Letters at Home will help people feel connected at a time when many are isolated and missing their loved ones.
